I have owned a lot of nice cars in my 86 years, from a 1931 Model A Roadster to a 1968 Pontiac GTO. In the early '50s I was a GM car designer and got to play with the 1950 Buick LeSabre in our studio. But my favorite car was this 1973 Opel GT that I drove for 13 years, until I retired. My biggest mistake was giving it to my 16-year-old grandson. Now I drive a 13-year-old minivan.
